This bug is about adding sound redirection support to the OSX client. That
porting PulseAudio to OSX.
PulseAudio seems to have support for coreaudio/OS X now.
OS X 10.5 is needed though, so we have to upgrade our current requirements and
As this bug has been open for quite a while now (2006) and not been addressed
yet (ThinLinc 4.1.1), we as a ThinLinc customer would like to explicitly
express our wish to see full sound support/redirection in an upcoming OSX
client version of ThinLinc since we are running ThinLinc Clients for a bunch of
OSX machines here.
Requested on the mailing list:
We also would highly appreciate that Mac OS X is fully supported by the
thinlinc client. This means that audio should works like under Linux and
Windows. Our users use skype as well as video editing software - for both audio
is a mandatory feature (play and record).

Tested build 4680 on OS X 10.10 and 10.6, works fine.
I just tested the latest nightly build (4.3.0post build 4680) on OS X Yosemite
10.10.3 as well and can report that sound works as expected now with a ThinLinc
Server version 4.3.0.
Thanks for implementing pulseuadio support in the OS X clients of ThinLinc.
This really improves user experience.
Tested using client build 4696 on both 10.6 and 10.10.
Playback/recording and reconnecting to a session with sound works as expected.
Needs to be retested after gcc fix.
Retested using build 4723, works as expected.
